    How much DJ's earn 

    You've made it out of the bedroom and into a club, promoting and playing a regular night at the back of a wine bar in your home town. You're pulling in the punters, but not getting much more attention than that.

    Often playing for free to get the exposure, maybe making a hundred quid a night and playing once or twice a weekend if you're lucky.

    + £100 x 50 sets a year = £5,000

    Expenses: Probably still buying your own drinks, although transportation costs are negligible. Spending a fair chunk on records/downloads to make sure the set list is up to scratch.

    - £25 per weekend on drinks/taxis
    - £25 per week on records/downloads

    Management cut: Non-existent – there's no point in paying someone else this early on.

    Extras: Any mixes will be going up on the internet for free, so there's no additional income; this is very much a second job.

    Annual income (before tax): £2,500
